Feature #1608

Add option to disable JSON escape slash

Added by Zach Rasmor over 5 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Target version:


We like to have the ability to search (grep) through JSON logs without de-serialization, however this becomes very tedious with the default presence of the JSON escape slash. I was planning to generate a patch to remove the JSON_ESCAPE_SLASH flag from the json_dump_callback function to fit our needs, however I am also happy to put in a little more effort to instead make this an option and contribute it back.

Let me know if this is something that the community would be interested in.

I wonder if this could/should be default behaviour. Not sure why we enable this option. Thoughts anyone?

Is this still relevant? Can I work on this?
